Today’s card is featuring another Mimi image from this year’s release. For this card the very ethereal (and cute) Fairy Dust (4399J).
I love so many aspects of the image: her long flowing hair, the flowers in her hair and her wings – my favorite.
I wanted to use watercolor on this Mimi. I stamped and embossed the image on Bristol paper. Her wings were the first that I wanted to color. They reminded me of a pattern you would see on a Tiffany lamp. I pressed Tumbled Glass, Shabby Shutters and Tattered Rose Distress Ink on a craft sheet and use these colors as my palette. The outside center was colored with a bronze colored pearlescent watercolor. Once I finished her wings, I colored the rest of Mimi, fussy cut her and set her aside.
For the background, I decided to add Tumbled Glass to the front of my cardbase and then added random stars using the Heidi Swapp Confetti stencil. The colors I used for the stars were Broken China and Seedless Preserves Distress Ink. I then created hills using Landscape Trio from Mama Elephant.
The hills were adhered to my cardbase. I then added Mimi with dimensional foam. Finally, I stamped a sentiment from Paper Smooches Joyful Greetings and added more shine to Mimi’s want using a gold WInk of Stella Pen.
Hope you’re having a great week!
